But let's face it, I don't want to piss off anything that could potentially be there (in the dark, in the corner of my bedroom). I am, for lack of a better word, a scardy cat when it comes to ghosts and the like.
However, that doesn't stop me from wanting to be scared witless every time a new scary film comes out (I honestly don't know why I like doing it to myself). So when I passed Ghost Stories a few weeks ago near Covent Garden, I knew I had to check it out.
M was my willing (read moaning) date for the evening, and we headed off ready for a fright night.
First though we stopped off at Pho to fill our stomachs.
I don't know much (anything at all really), about Vietnamese food, however I know Pho do delicious well. They started out as a street food vendor in 2005 and now have a few places round London, and in Brighton and Leeds (so if you're in either of those places check them out!).
Ordering a Hanoi Mule cocktail for myself and a Vietnamese beer for M (naturally), we sat taking in the menu. Although I'd been a couple of times before, I could never remember what I had eaten, only that it'd came in a big bowl and was delicious.
That led me to the Pho Chin, a noodle soup with beef brisket shredded in. M wanted the same, except more meat, so he went for the Pho Bo Combo, with beef brisket, meatballs (who knew they had meatballs in vietnamese cooking?), and steak. Along with a few sides, we felt happy.
Now what you're about to see is the worst food photography ever, and I mean ever. Let's just say that my camera and I had a disagreement, and all technique and tricks I had learnt went out the window.
These were Nem Hai San, crispy rolls containing prawn, crab and pork - an odd combo, but my gosh it was delicious.
Along with your noodle soup you get a side plate of herbs and beansprouts to pop into your noodles too, a great idea, if like me, you like to studiously avoid adding more chillies than what comes with it.
Thoroughly satisfied we made a brief stop off at the Hummingbird Bakery a couple of doors down.
Before heading to the Arts Theatre.
Taking a seat, it wasn't long before the lights dimmed...
All in all it was a fantastic show - it even had M's seal of approval (and that boy does not like theatre).
Written by Jeremy Dyson (of League of Gentlemen) and Andy Nyman (Derren Brown's assistant writer for his shows), there was a bit of fright, a bit of laughter, and a whole lotta fun - the story was surprising, and had me guessing right to the end (a sign of good writing in my book).
I'd seriously recommend going if you want something different to a normal night out at the theatre.
You can even go for the front row of tickets starting from £20! But don't worry, ghosts aren't real... right?
